A Whale Inspired Retro Boys Room for Ez

Ez's New Room





With our new house only weeks away, I'm starting to get pretty excited! In my head I have all these grand ideas for interior decor, especially for my kids rooms! Unfortunately, my budget doesn't quite fit my dreams! But, that doesn't stop me from dreaming, planning and trying to get a little creative within our budget constraints. I actually love pouring over kids decor and getting inspiration, there is so much gorgeous stuff out there. So this week I decided to get it out of my head and down in front of me! 

I've been thinking about a Whale inspired room for Ezra, but I didn't want to make it to 'themey', but something that can easily be adapted as he grows older, and perhaps if he looses his love of whales! I already have the Oscar bed from Incy Interiors, I bought it months ago when they were having a huge sale. The desk is something I picked up from Ebay back before Ez was even born, and I recently bought the awesome watercolour whale print by Lauren Merrick. The lamp is a little expensive for me, I'm trying to find something similar that is around $40 but I'm not having much luck. 

 I've been avoiding getting a Polyvore account (how I made the above collage) for a long time, because I know that I would easily become obsessed... and I did. But sometimes you just need to get ideas out of your head and see them in front of you, and Polyvore is great for that, and much easier than Photoshop for me! Plus it keeps the links to all the products saved in an easy to access place. 

I can't seem to hold my love of interiors back anymore, so you will be seeing a bit more of my ideas around here! I hope you enjoy it!

  1. I have been adoring that Lauren Merrick whale for the longest time! I know it's not quite the same but have you seen this lamp? http://www.target.com.au/p/limited-editions-45cm-desk-lamp-twt2336-1/55023344

  4. LOVE LOVE this!! I'm in the process of doing up my boys room too and I could seriously spend hours looking at interiors, especially kids stuff (and kids clothes too). If only I had a limitless budget, lol x

  5. So cute! Love the ideas! I am just not arty when it comes to home decor at all. Maybe if we ever need redecorating, I'll come ask you for help instead? :)

  6. It is sooo addictive!! I found it really hard to narrow it down to a style and theme, I wanted EVERYTHING! I need to have like 10 kids to make rooms for haha!

  8. That's very cool, I'm stuck with that to do with my boys rooms, there is NO spare space to do anything but it's so babyish still! I want that chair for myself!

  9. Great ideas. It's so fun imagining what you can do with a new space. I am trying to organise a baby room now, and it's hard to incorporate the old family 15 year old hand made cot into me blue/black/white theme. Poor baby... I know! #teamIBOT ;)

  11. Polyvore is a drug. I had to give it up so I could concentrate on my Pinterest addiction... x
